Finding Inner Peace: Simple Techniques for a Calm and Centred Mind

Inner peace is a state of calm and tranquility that is characterized by a sense of contentment, fulfillment, and happiness. In today’s fast-paced world, it can be challenging to find inner peace, as we are often surrounded by stress, anxiety, and negativity. However, by incorporating simple techniques into your daily routine, you can cultivate a sense of inner peace and improve your overall well-being.

Here are some simple techniques for finding inner peace:

  1. Meditation: Meditation is one of the most effective ways to cultivate inner peace. By quieting the mind and focusing on the present moment, you can reduce stress, anxiety, and negative thoughts, and improve your overall well-being.
  2. Mindful breathing: Mindful breathing is a simple and effective technique for reducing stress and anxiety and promoting inner peace. To practice mindful breathing, find a quiet place to sit or lie down, and focus on your breath as you inhale and exhale. Pay attention to the sensation of your breath moving in and out of your body, and let any thoughts or distractions pass by without getting caught up in them.
  3. Gratitude: Practicing gratitude is a simple and effective way to promote inner peace. By focusing on the things that you are grateful for, you can shift your attention away from negative thoughts and feelings, and cultivate a sense of contentment and happiness.
  4. Nature walks: Spending time in nature is a great way to find inner peace. By immersing yourself in the beauty and tranquility of nature, you can quiet your mind, reduce stress, and improve your overall well-being.
  5. Yoga: Yoga is a great way to cultivate inner peace. By combining physical postures with deep breathing and meditation, you can reduce stress, increase flexibility, and improve your overall well-being.

In conclusion, finding inner peace is a simple and effective way to improve your overall well-being. By incorporating techniques such as meditation, mindful breathing, gratitude, nature walks, and yoga into your daily routine, you can cultivate a sense of inner peace and happiness, and experience greater physical, mental, and emotional health.

A new you for 2022 – Learn how you can feel fulfilled in life now?

Are you feeling stuck and experiencing insecurity in your life?

If you are experiencing any of the subjects below, they can be helped by Meditation, Energy healing or Integral core therapy.

  • undecided about what you should be doing with your life
  • wanting a more harmonious family life
  • having a busy, stress-filled lifestyle
  • suffering from self-doubt and fear
  • not being able to achieve your dreams or goals
  • longing to find a meaningful relationship
  • feeling like a victim of your to-do list
  • the same problem repeatedly being experienced in your life
  • feeling lost or stuck in a rut
  • feeling as if you aren’t reaching your full potential
  • feeling burnt out.

Many of the above are caused by energy blocks from childhood or negative beliefs about yourself.


Meditation will help bring the block or belief to the surface so you can start to work deeper with energy healing or Integral Core Therapy if you wish. Sometimes just bringing a negative belief to consciousness can be enough. Soul Essence runs fortnightly online meditation classes on Tuesday evenings. I also do one to ones or group sessions at peoples homes. Please remember you do not need to sit crossed legged to meditate a comfortable chair to keep your back straight is all that is required. If you prefer to sit in the lotus position then that is fine also.

Energy Healing

Energy healing will aid the release of suppressed negative energy, that is causing blocks in your energy field, allowing your energy to flow and creating Inner Peace. If these blocks are left they can create anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. The number of sessions required will depend on the cause of the block and how easily you are able to access the block to allow it to release. Stages of a therapy session

Integral Core Therapy

Integral Core Therapy is the spiritual work of Amadis Cammell. The primary intention is to access your core self which is the source of healing, wisdom, strength, and compassion. As your therapist-facilitator, I can support you whilst you are working to resolve childhood issues and access your inner resources. The actual healer, mentor, and guide is your own integral core self.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Find your inner peace now!

Are you feeling overwhelmed in life, struggling with your workload, always rushing from one task to the next, feeling stressed and anxious? In today’s modern world we have forgotten what it is like to live a life where we’re not always overloaded, overworked, and underappreciated, by those around us and by ourselves. For help on all these subjects Soul Essence is starting a fortnightly class in the New Year to find our inner calm and peace. Sign up here and receive some information on how you start to help yourself now and receive more information in the new year of the class.

Listen to music

Music is food for the soul and an instant way to gain peace of mind. Try to listen to calming relaxing music rather than heavy rock/pop. There is plenty of information online on how sound waves change the water and other elements. Just remember we are 70% to 80%, so sound waves affect our body.

Deep breathing/meditation

Taking deep breaths helps you focus on your breathing and not on things that make you anxious. Meditation can help this too, it can be a guided meditation taking you on a journey to relax or focussing on a candle or music. The end result is a calmer you.

Go for a walk

Being out in the fresh air can help promote peace of mind. It is also good physical exercise to help you improve your health.

Enjoy nature

If you live in a city, find some green spaces to connect with nature, listen to the birds and enjoy the peaceful feeling. If you are in the countryside you have more choices where to connect with nature. Nature revives our energy and inner spirit and can teach us major lessons if we are willing to observe and understand. Getting in tune with it can help optimize our immunity and ultimately our wellbeing. As nature calms you, your stress level reduces which improves your immune system.


Clutter can add to feelings of tension and a clean, clear home allows a clearer, more peaceful mind. There are many ideas online to help you declutter.


Learn what we can control and what we cannot. Let go of the things you can’t change like the weather, traffic, various delays. Look for the positive things in your life.


Learning to love/like ourselves helps us feel more at ease. By loving ourselves we can decrease our feelings of insecurity and find more inner peace

Be true to you

Behave similarly to the way we feel and think. If we see ourselves as a loving mother and do not behave in that way, we will not have a feeling of inner peace.

Sense of humour

Try and see the funny side of things. Laughing has always been said to be good medicine. This is because laughter increases our intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates our lungs and muscles and increases that feel-good hormone “endorphins”

Love unconditionally

Insecurity destroys peace of mind. By not expecting anything back, we can love without fear. The conditions we put on love create our inner turmoil.

Life in the moment

Eckhart Tolle explains this so well in his book “Power of Now”. We cannot change the past and what we do in this present moment is what will affect our future. Trying to live in the past or future just creates worry and anxiety.

Adopt an attitude of gratitude

Putting our focus on all the times and for things we are grateful for helps to promote our inner calm. Always try to find positive in your life. Just think of the best thing that happened this day and say thank you just before you go to bed.

See failure as learning

None of us would have learned to walk if we had not failed a few times first. To improve in anything, you have to fail and try again. Just remember it is not you that is the failure, it is what you tried that failed. There is a difference

Connect with others

Life is about sharing with others and feeling understood, this gives us a sense of wellbeing.

Find positive outlets for negative emotions

Sports, particularly martial arts are a great way of releasing negative emotions. You can also release through therapy groups or various hobbies. Suppressing negative emotions is likely to lead to ill health.

Slow down

We are living at a time where we expect everything now. How often do you get frustrated when something is slowly downloading or not happening at the pace you would like. We place pressure on ourselves unnecessarily. Observe when you are feeling impatient and why.

Challenge your “should” and “musts”

Replace these words with could and stop putting pressure on yourself. You will start feeling more peace.

Be kind

By being kind to others it makes us feel good too. Try doing random acts of kindness for others.

Don’t compare

Do what you want, follow your path, we are all on our own journeys and at different places. Stop creating stress by comparing yourself with others “BE YOU”


Affirmations are a great way to stop the inner critic and be positive. Here are some affirmations for anxiety. 

Monitor your thoughts

We are so often overly critical of ourselves, try to talk to ourselves like you would a best friend. Remember our thoughts and words create our lives. Being harsh with yourself will not create inner peace.

Get enough sleep

Make sure you get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep to regenerate your body. If we are overtired things will not go well and we will feel miserable.

Just to remind you Soul Essence will cover these and more in the fortnightly class in the new year. Sign up here and receive some information about how you start to help yourself now and receive more information in the new year about the class.
